SILVA, Francisco; AREZES, Pedro  e  SWUSTE, Paul. Risk management of occupational exposure to nanoparticles during a development project: A case study. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2016, vol.83, n.197, pp.9-16. ISSN 0012-7353.

The production of nanotechnology based products is increasing, along with the conscience of the possible harmful effects of some nanomaterials. Along with technological advances, there is the need to improve knowledge of safety and health and apply that knowledge to the workplace. The "safety-by-design" approaches are attracting attention as helpful tools to develop safer products and production processes. The Systematic Design Analysis Approach could help to identify the solutions to control workplace risks by defining the emission and exposure scenarios and the possible barriers to interrupt them. When managing risks during a photocatalytic ceramic tiles development project, it was possible to identify relevant nanoparticles emission scenarios and related barriers. Possible ways to reduce them could then be defined, which would in turn, lead to an inherently safer production process.

Palavras-chave : photocalytic ceramic tiles; risk assessment; systematic design analysis; inherently safer process.
